This group is a place for amateur astronomers and casual skygazers in the central Alberta/greater Edmonton area to get together and help each other enjoy observing the universe.
We plan to have events such as local star parties, camping at local dark sky sites, social events, workshops etc. We also plan to be a great forum for local amateur astronomers to communicate together, have astronomy-related discussions and to share their information and photographs with the rest of us. You should join us if you like looking up at the sky with your naked eyes, binoculars or a telescope.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
